Ioanna is outstanding. Excellent knowledge of Athens sites, very personable, professional, fun to be with. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. She takes her work seriously and try's to make her tours informative and enjoyable. We would use her again.

Ioanna (Joan) was great to work with. She confirmed the meeting location upon booking and again the day before. She came with tickets pre-purchased so we only had to reimburse her and could spend our time starting in on the tour. She was very informative about both the Acropolis (visited 1st when cooler & less crowded) and the Museum. She highlighted interesting items in the museum and pointed us in the direction of various options if we wished to spend more time in the exhibits.

Our guide Ioanna was wonderful. We chose her because of her studies in archaeology and it was well worth it. She could provide background as deeply as we wanted on any of the sites, answered any and all questions. We asked for an introduction to Greek cuisine at the end of our private tour and she took us to some extremely cool little local restaurants for selections of various Greek delicasis. Highest marks!

Ionna gave us a wonderful tour of the Acropolis and Ancient Agora. Ionna shared with us all the important mythology of the sites as well as the specifics of the archeology, construction and renovation. It was a wonderful tour all around,

Seeing the Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum with Ioanna was such a wonderful experience. We had been to the sites before but we got so much more out of our visit because of her knowledge and her incredible ability to convey the history. Ioanna even got our tickets ahead of time do that we wouldn't have to wait in the long line. Cannot recommend highly enough—make sure that when you visit Athens you book a tour with Ioanna!
We booked a private tour of Acropolis with Ioanna. She was professional, attentive to us during the tour and very friendly. She is very knowledgeable and was personable where she kept our interest by keeping it fun. We learned a lot about Acropolis! I would recommend Ioanna as a tour guide to anyone.

This was one of the smartest things we did in Athens. Ioanna was the perfect guide for us. She gave us a tour of the Acropolis which was always interesting and so leisurely paced that even in the 90s heat we didn't feel over extended. She was professional yet very approachable and casual. I'm sure she has given the tour many times but nothing felt as if it were by rote or tired. She also gave us a wonderful suggestion for what to do on a free day which we loved.

Courteous and knowledgeable guide who was on time for start and attentive to our interests and questions regarding Acropolis and Agorra. Highly recommend your firm as earlier this year I also enjoyed your Toledo Spain Tour.
Sandhya BoosupalliUnited States
Ioanna was a wonderful guide. She was full of information about the sites and about the city. She was helpful in answering questions not related to the tour either. Half our group dropped out after the tour of the Museum and she gave them a good spot to wait while the rest of us went up. She understood our needs and accommodated them accordingly. I highly recommend her!
Robert H.United States
We are so happy that we booked our tour with Ioanna K! She is extremely knowledgeable and made our tour of the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum fun and interesting for our entire family. We highly recommend her!
Sherri SkrivanosUnited States
Our tour of the Ancient Agora and Acropolis with Ioanna K. was wonderful. She answered all of our many questions and we left the tour with a better understanding of how the city was arranged and how it developed going back many centuries. A tour of this quality is a must to fully understand the antiquities that abound in the beautiful city of Athens.
Sheila SheaUnited States
Our group of 4 spent a wonderful tour with Ioanna and highly recommend her. She is personable and very knowledgeable with advanced education as an archeologist. Lots of extra info and we enjoyed her gentle manner. ToursByLocals never disappoints!

We were extremely pleased with Ioanna. She was very nice and accommodating with my family of six. We toured the main sites with her for about 4 hours. She was very knowledgable, spoke very good English and explained each site very thoroughly. She was the best guide we have ever used , if you get a chance book with her!!
Alicia S.United States
Ioanna did a terrific job covering the items on the tour's agenda, moving conversation easily among our two adult children and ourselves. She was knowledgable and open to many topics of conversation. Timing was excellent and flexible as we needed it. Added a new element to stops we happened to have visited earlier in the week. Recommend without reservation.
Maxwell MrazUnited States
We were concerned with Ioanna's experience prior to the tour. That was not an issue. She was extremely knowledgeable about the Acropolis, the museum, and the city of Athens. The tour was everything we were looking for and then more! Highly recommend Ioanna for all people looking for a private tour. Well worth it.
Melinda (Mindy) ClarkAlexandria, VA, United States
Ioanna was a marvelous guide, very flexible, accommodating and very knowledgeable. She knows about the obvious parts of Athens (ruins and ancient history), but also showed me a lot about the "local flavor" by taking me to markets and up side streets that would otherwise have been off my route. This is my favorite thing in a new city and I really loved the day. I would definitely recommend her tours!
Vincent WebbUnited States
The best way to get to knows the "local" scenery places and food away from touristy areas A good hike and well worth the effort
Vincent WebbUnited States
Excellent knowledge of Greek history with superb stamina to climb Acropolis Hill Very cordial & attentive to clientele's needs 5 stars aren't high enough!!
Gladell P.United States
I booked my tour only a day before I arrived in Athens, and I am so happy (and lucky) that Ioanna was available to be my guide. My plan was to explore the museum and Acropolis site and to have in-depth information about the relics and sites. And walla, Ionna has this incredible encyclopedic knowledge who is also an archeologist(!). She kept me very well informed throughout, topped with her bubbly and pleasant personality. I really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend this to everyone!

It was very interesting to see the different areas of Greece and to learn the history. We had a great time and traveled at our price.
